I just started jogging last month...I go after 6pm when it fresher outside or I started getting up about an hour earlier on my days off and go...I haven't jogged on a treadmill...but its something I am thinking about for the winter since most likely I wont be able to be outside much...I agree with the other answer...push yourself on it and then slow down..switching it up while working out will help...I even do it while I jog...jog for 10mins and walk for 1min...something different and it keeps it interesting...good luck and enjoy

I just started jogging as well... but jogging period (I haven't done it on the treadmill, only outside). I work at 7am, but I get up early and go out for my jog at 515 or 530 (when it is starting to get light). I can't do it later as it is too hot. Maybe you could do on the treadmill like they do on the biggest loser... do so many minutes at a speed that really pushes you, jump off, lower the speed and go... then challenge yourself again.
So, I finally got a jogging stroller, and I'm putting it to good use. But there is such a difference between running on a treadmill and running in real life. I'm not jogging nearly as much as I did on the treadmill, but I am getting better. Next week, I have to work (the up and out by 7 am kinda working!) so I won't be able to beat the summer heat (we're usually up and out by 8 am!) How do I keep a good workout on the treadmill that will keep me able to jog in the real world?
